The NFL is stealing Christmas Day from the NBA this year. With the league's official schedule release still a few weeks away it was revealed by the NFL V.P. of broadcasting that this year's schedule will feature a Christmas Day triple-header.
As if you weren't already standing at full attention, there will also be a Christmas Eve night game on the NFL Network!
From Pro Football Talk:
NFL V.P. of broadcasting Mike North recently told Sal Capaccio of WGR in Buffalo that the NFL will field a Christmas triple-header for the first time ever.
“We’ll play one game on CBS in the afternoon, one game on Fox in the afternoon, and our regular Sunday night game on NBC,” North said. “Christmas, when it falls on an NFL game day, we’ve had a lot of success there, all due respect to our friends at the NBA.”
North explained that, as usual, the bulk of the weekend’s games will be played on Saturday, December 24. There also will be a Christmas Eve night game on NFL Network.
Love it. I love everything about this. Who doesn't want an excuse to get away from the family during Christmas?
Now we all have an excuse. Sorry I'd love to get off the couch, but there's football on!
